Focus: Statelessness, esp. Rohingya

The Statelessness Programme at Tilburg University has put out the following call to academics working on statelessness issues:
Are you or do you know a university reseacher or lecturer who does some work on statelessness or closely related issues? Then please get in touch! We are compiling a list of academics with this shared interest in the hope of encouraging greater cooperation and the spreading of ideas and research findings. Plus, we are looking into possibilities to organise the first international conference on statelessness and would like to seek the input of this community of academics on topics that should be placed on the agenda. Send all tips, suggestions and contact details to statelessness.programme@tilburguniversity.edu.
